Happy labor day!
Now put your white pants away.
Oh, we’re not following that rule anymore? Winter white you say? Huh.
What’s that? You don’t own white pants? Neither did I, until July. I didn’t WANT to own white pants, especially not white skinny jeans. In fact before July I didn’t own a single piece of white clothing aside from bras and underpants. Why wear white? IT GETS SO DIRTY.
White turns dingy. Cody wore an old white shirt to church yesterday and it was OFFENSIVE. There’s white, then there’s “used to be white.” Cody’s shirt certainly was certainly a fine shade of used to be white.
What about the pit stains in white clothes? Because pit stains never look good on anyone.
Tide asked if I’d work with them at the EVO conference, which I was thrilled about! But part of the agreement was that I had to wear white clothes.
Tide wanted to interview people at the conference about what wearing white meant to them. For me it meant buying clothes that were just going to get dirty then never get clean, because hello? It’s white. However, after wearing white for four days I realized I actually liked it. It felt fresh, clean and it was so easy to match and accessorize. I DIDN’T EVEN GET DIRTY!
Now that it’s Labor Day, do I have to put my white pants away? How do you even do winter white? Oh sheesh, ALL THESE RULES.
It’s all these rules that forced me into comfortable embrace of black stretchy pants in the first place.
I wore white all summer and now that summer is beginning to fade into fall? My whites are still white.
Turns out wearing white isn’t so scary, if we could just get all these weird rules out of the way.
(You guys? Betty White prepares for the apocalypse while wearing white.)
I think that’s something I can get behind.
What about you? Do you wear white year round? Do you wear white at all? I swear to you, wearing white is liberating and refreshing (plus it doesn’t show cat hair) you should totally give it a try.
A special thanks to Tide for sponsoring this post. I was provided with Tide products and have been compensated for my time spent participating in the launch of Tide VIVID. All opinions are my own, especially the one about how much I like white.
